Re: It's about time.

it demonstrates that measuring devices show different results according to their motion... do the space and time themselves actually change? are they always local events? do "universal" space and time appear to be beyond measure? necessarily separate events based on unique observers and observation...

Re: How Jesus could be left alone?

Regarding (“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”) What did whoever originated the utterance mean by it? What does the utterance mean to you? Are two different questions. Well, Belinda, first off,... (and keeping in mind that we are talking about something that may not have happened in precis...

Re: How Jesus could be left alone?

The tri-fold Abrahamic enterprise in a nutshell: 1. Judaism zeroed-in on the idea that there is only one Supreme Being presiding over the universe. no, prior to 587 BC Judaism was fully Polytheistic, i.e. the Jewish God YHWH (there was a debate about YHWH being "God" or El (YHWH daddy) - read Exodu...

Re: How Jesus could be left alone?

It appears that the last thing that Jesus said was "Oh God why you have forsaken me?". How this separation could happen if Jesus and God are one. The tri-fold Abrahamic enterprise in a nutshell: 1. Judaism zeroed-in on the idea that there is only one Supreme Being presiding over the universe. 2. Ch...

Re: Kant

_______ I don’t know if this was discussed earlier in the thread, but how does everyone feel about the rationality of Kant’s reasoning when it comes to such things as the “murderer at the door” issue? ------- On a lighter note, I’m guessing that one of the reasons why Kant never got married might ha...

Re: Here’s a question for anyone who believes in the existence of HELL:

Now I realize that there aren’t many Christians or Muslims participating in this forum, nevertheless, perhaps some lurkers might chime in. The question I am going to pose by way of a thought experiment is primarily based on the Christian belief that many (indeed, most) humans are going to end up in...

Re: 2020: not safe for anyone

Look, I don’t claim to have any solution to this problem, and I certainly can see the logic on both sides of the issue. However, when someone writes the following,...

Have you given any consideration whatsoever as to what must be done with the thousands upon thousands of people who come into the hospital ERs as accident victims, burn victims, heart attack victims, or any number of other reasons, if there are no ventilators available to keep them alive? Would tha...

Re: 2020: mandatory masks? poo!

But masks only need to be worn for the my-mask-protects-me scenario scenario anyway. what? Are you surprised to see that this is my statement? Consider me woke. Here’s how I figure it now: Let the people who fear COVID wear masks if they want to. They probably won’t get sick. They should be happy a...

Re: What is gravity?

_______ (Continued from prior post) And why do particles with different mass, or no mass at all, show the same kind of superpositional behaviour? Wouldn't that mean that mass has nothing to do with gravity? Just as a simple point of reference, according to Wiki... Mass is both a property of a physic...

Re: What is gravity?

How can this "informational underpinning" be oneness, and separate interacting wavefunctions at the same time? Atla, admittedly, I was taking a bit of license with the word “oneness,” so you are correct to point that out. Nevertheless, keeping in mind that the hologram is just a speculative analogy...

Re: Here’s a question for anyone who believes in the existence of HELL:

gaffo, even though we are discussing mythological nonsense here, it would be nice if you would pay closer attention to what is actually written. my point was that Christ dying was of little self sacrifce - your post implied he died for sinners who sit in hell, and so he preach to them in order to s...
